3 gears and the motor is running "backwards", regardless of configuration. See above.

To clarify...I'm not saying there is a right or wrong direction of rotation for the motor in a mid-motor configuration. Just that an additional gear changes the direction and it's effect on the chassis and handling.

Am I right in saying a 2 gear or 4 gear for the throttle and torque to be forward pushing in MM car and not give a bucking horse type of feeling when you hit the initial throttle? Works pretty good in Centro.

I am really liking the chassis layout. It does not require a LP servo, it looks really balanced and its purpose built. These are all the things I want in a MM car. If it works wekk on outdoor close to medium bite, I for see myself running MM later this year.

Selling my stock sc and Tekno 4x4 to pay for these. Got one coming from Amain and one from Tower. We'll see who gets one to my door first...lol. The 2nd will be spare parts. Never pre ordered before, and most of my stuff I've bought used, but this buggy looks like what I hoped it would when the rumor mill was going strong 6 months ago.

Also, big thanks to my buddy Jason Snyder for making AE fans proud with one awesome looking first post.

I feel like taking the chance on the mid motor even tho I run on an outdoor track that can sometimes be very dusty. It depends if any track work is done on it after the 1/8's

It's not easy for me to tell you guys this and I'm not sure I should, But!

I saw the test mule today and it was sweet! Traditional AE slop gone! Fit and finish on the mule was excellent hopefully it caries over to the production car.

I'd rather not say out here, check your pm. Suffice to say They weren't hiding the car but the weren't waiving banners over it either. They started early and left when the track started getting busy.
